Agree completely.  I put aside the tall boots for summer but rock the heck out of them for the other three seasons.

Well my boots came today, wow the fit is amazing. Is there a trick for the shoe trees? Having a very hard time taking them out and putting in.

You get used to it, definitely the tightest fitting trees I've experienced

Thanks, with the boots, can't seem to get them to angle in, guess I'll just have to get used to it.

Beautiful pictures ... not only confirms all their beauty ... and why not have them still used? I would put them with any color dress or pants! I can not wait to see the photos side! Thanks again for showing these rare beauties.

They're damn tight.

Interesting.  If I have one small disappointment with my pair it's that the trees aren't very tight.  Not sloppy loose, but not as snug fitting as my Anthony Cleverley lasted trees.  I wonder if my G-with fitting has anything to do with it?

Thanks for the kind words Gianni. I will take more photos when I wear them

I notice mine are tight, but naturally have loosened up over time. I like that they are tight because I know they are doing something. My Corthay lasted trees were useless.

I haven't found this. My St C trees fit at least as snugly as my Anthony Cleverly trees, and my right foot is a G width. Could St C have supplied you with the wrong trees?

I heard they make each pair of trees for the shoes, they aren't just mass made in sizes. It could just be the fact that handmade stuff has slight variations.
post #2084 of 2537
Yeah mine are G and shoe tree should be marked with your shoe number? Might be since it's a chukka?
